    Well done Danielle going great.

    70 pounds off for me today 170/1400 slow progress.

    Just feeling guilty bought some clothes online, perhaps they may not fit and pay debts off instead oops. Thought I would treat myself before daughter returns from her traveling next week - haven't seen her for 18 mths so excited.

    Have a great weekend folks x

    Local buy n sell on facebook vs ebay
    Hi, don't know if this will help but I found selling my stuff on my local buy and sell page on Facebook saved me dosh. Ebay charged me a fee to sell then PayPal charged me a fee for using them. The buy and sell collected and paid cash straight up x

    £100 paid today for me making it

    £100/£1600

    A slow start but will be adding to it at the end of the month once I know there's no unexpected outgoings. Also got some maternity stuff to sell. Think I'll be trying facebook to Moneybutterfly. Will resort to ebay if there's no takers. Plus some books for Ziffit, won't make much but it all adds up.
